It's been a musical weekend here in the Six household. Mike is participating in the "Rusty Musician's Orchestra" at church in a few weeks. On Saturday he came home with his newly rented trumpet to practice on. It was a huge hit, and everyone wanted a turn.
Eli doesn't know what to think. I think he's amazed that sister has reached new heights of loudness. And check out the Dizzy Gillespie cheek action.
Elena wanted to play "Marching Band," which consisted of her marching up and down the sidewalk and inflicting great pain upon anyone within earshot. At one point during this game, our new neighbors pulled in. We thought maybe today was move-in day, but they quickly drove away. Perhaps to the real estate office?
Mike offered me $5 if I could make an actual note come out of the trumpet on my first try. If we weren't the Weirdos of Wyandotte already, sitting in the driveway, trying to play the trumpet and having your husband and 6-year-old yelling at you to "Kiss it and blow!" probably doesn't help matters.
Next we moved on to our newly acquired "Guitar Hero World Tour." Here's Elena tackling Sublime's "Santeria." This went downhill quickly when she switched to Freestyle mode with her Mii. Other wise known as "Torture Mommy and Drive Her To Drink."
In honor of our new game, I dressed Eli appropriately. A big shout out to Aunt Suzie who scored this cool shirt at the ACL Music Festival.
Rock on, my friends.
